The Shadowed Man
6" x 8"
For my 10th concentration, the medium I used for The Shadowed Man is pencil. The Pencils I used for this piece is a 2H, HB, 2B, 4B, and 6B. I used a shading pencil to give a smooth look to the suit. To give a harsh aspect to the face, I used a kneaded eraser to lift parts of the pencil. This also gives the statue, a worn look. The darkened eyes gives a sullen and scowling expression. For his mustache, I used a kneaded eraser again and outlined the organic shapes to give texture. I also used this technique for the beard. The shadows of the trees add to the erie atmosphere of the entire drawing and overall completes this drawing. I really enjoyed drawing this picture mainly because of the statues eyes. I like the invert colors with his face in contrast with his eyes.
